After reading only the title, I was too shocked already to read the rest.
Developers, lowly-intelligent and lowly-educated as almost all of them are, are themselves amongst the people that deliver the worst imaginable bug reports. Give me a normal "user" anyday; their lack of developer arrogance makes them a functional partner in getting the report right. Developers on the other hand tend to mistakenly concentrate on technicalities, their own warped view of "what users want", or even already on what they "know is the solution".
Have a nice day!
Hmmm, interesting. Would that indicate that skipping version numbers is somehow connected to producing non-standard, totally crappy user interfaces?
I feel skipping version numbers is only one step removed from the absolute worst versioning system of using random, not necessarily increasing numbers for each new update. Were these guys drunk or so?
I have 3.1.10 and thought I was quite up to date
When will people stop calling engineers scientists. Engineering is not science, but craft, not unlike woodworking or cooking.
I might agree with calling typical engineering a "craft+" or so, but again, engineering has nothing to do with science.
I almost cried of happiness when I saw they fixed the position of the URL info.
It is behavioiur that is in stark contrast with that of e.g. Gnome, which never listens to "user uprisings", or Ubuntu, which moved the 3 window title buttons to the wrong location and, despite fully justified comments on this, never even thought of correcting that bug.
Good to see there are still development teams that listen to reason.
On my system, the tabs ONLY go to the title bar when the whole window is maximized. Possibily because some drunk developer thought we would only need the extra vertical space if we indicated we would need extra spcae by maximizing the whole window?
Another bad choice.
Far worse is that I always have my browser vertically maximized only, because I'm specifically missing VERTICAL space. But this braindead behaviour only gives me the extra vertical space if I also horizontally maximize my window (so the result is total maximalization).

Mr Taco must have laughed the laugh of a naive person.

Just a character with a serial number.
All other information can either be automatically gathered, and thus should be, or belongs in an administrative CMDB. And b.t.w. the same holds for servers.
Really: just a number. If you don't do that you shoot yourself in the foot with having to maintain information in a place where it is inconvenient to maintain, AND you risk administering the same information twice, which is a burden, and a source for errors.
I cannot now remember the name of the specific emulator. But I have seen these effects implemented many years ago already with one of the Commodore 64 emulators I was then tinkering with.
And it really made the experience a LOT nicer
